Expand telehealth access with FCC funding

What is the FCC $250 million telehealth fund?

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is opening up a new application round around early May and will be distributing $250 million to not-for-profit clinics and hospitals to fund telehealth access. The FCC released the rules on March 30, 2021.

Sano Health participated in a webinar on Monday April 5, 2021 regarding the FCC funding and how to apply. Here is the recording.

How can Sano Health help you secure funding?

Sano Health helped many healthcare providers apply for FCC funding in the first round to expand telehealth access to under-connected patients. Sano will help non-profit providers prepare successful applications in the upcoming round.

Some providers Sano has helped:

St. Thomas Community Health Center

St Thomas CHC worked with Sano to apply for FCC funding, and is using the award to provide Sano devices to over 3000 under-connected patients; these devices are enabling the St. Thomas providers to conduct telehealth sessions with many elderly and low-income patients who previously had no access to remote care.

UPMC Children's Hospital

The pediatric transplant group at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) is using Sano’s devices and connectivity to enable juvenile transplant patients to stay in the queue for organ availability and receive telehealth-based treatment post-surgery.
Sano has assisted UPMC at every stage of the process, from preparing the funding application to program design and execution.

The customer service provided by Sano Health during the process has been great. Anything we’ve asked for has been done with ease. It was a lot of work rolling it out, but the reward was worth it. Sano Health shares our belief that even if we just made a difference in one person’s life, that’s what it’s all about.

– Dawn Wilkerson, MSN, UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, Transplant Clinical Director

CrescentCare of New Orleans

CrescentCare of New Orleans, who received FCC funding, is working closely with Sano to use this funding to create a solution that includes voice calling, texting, as well as telehealth access for their under-connected patients.

Our medical, case management, and behavioral health teams have been very excited about us rolling out the Sano Health device. No one at Sano Health ever told me something wasn’t possible. I would 100% recommend someone working with Sano Health for your telehealth solutions.

– Mark Hennick, Chief Information Officer, CrescentCare
